have a deteriorating situation on the ground. you have al-qaeda there. hezbollah there. we think hamas elements there. we know they have expressed a desire to get their hands on chemical weapons and more sophisticated weapons. this is a disaster that has happened for 70,000 syrians, and could be brought in to the whole wider middle east, southern europe. that is a huge problem. i think that is why the democrats and republicans are growing in chorus and saying we need to do something. not talking about huge military intervention, but there are capabilities we have that could impact the outcome. >> bret: you mentioner if reason sick evidence. is the u.s. trying to get forensic evidence? >> clearly, you want -- as an old f.b.i. guy, you want as much as you can get. if you can get forensic evidence that says for sure and for certain this is the chemical compound they use, that is great. there is a bunch of other information we can obtain that would lead to us a solid conclusion about the chemical weapons. >> bret: ambassador condoleezzsusanrice had the u.nn and do the investigation or help
of the israel which was so dog matted i can if they didn't believe in it. >> hezbollah, hamas, islamic jihad, iran, i thought it was geopolitical earth quick when mahmoud ahmadinejad went to cairo and the world didn't pay attention it to. is israel being at risk of being annihilated? >> absolutely. and it gets worse each day. israel again smaller than the state of new jersey, it can be wiped out by nuclear weapons and surrounded by enemies. >> sean: congressman, thanks for being here. coming up on special edition.... >> the goal i set to defeat al-qaeda is now within reach. >> sean: why that statement is false and this administration refuses to acknowledge that the refuses to acknowledge that the war on terrorism exists in 201 [ male announcer ] it's relobster's lobsterfest our largest selection of lobster erees, like lobster lover's dream or new grilledobster and lobster tacos. come in now and sea food differently. visit redlobster.com now for an exclusive $10 coupon on two lobsterfest entrees. visit redlobster.com now dad: you excited for youyeah.st day? ♪ dad: you'll be fine, ok? girl:
't been tested against what hezbollah has been which is a much different store ji. >> that's certainly true. hamas fired i believe 4,000 rockets from gaza in a month. if this really does end in a fight with hezbollah in lebanon, hezbollah allegedly has at least 50,000 rockets, much better rockets, too. >> and iron dome could not handle 50,000? >> no way. no. it will help. i think there are 5 iron dome systems in place active at the moment. their goal is to create 13 iron dome systems. it will help a lot. but hundreds of rockets fired a day. it apt going to do that much. >> does this set back peace though in an odd way? if you can build fortresses for israel, then what is the incentive to do a two state solution? >> one of the issues of iron dome, one of the reasons that part of the military was against the iron dome is it was considered to be a defensive weapon. and israel, the military crowd is an offensive army. so they said we're spending money in the wrong place. we shouldn't be worried about defending. we should be worried about winning by creating attacking weapons. so the releva
at them from gaza. they have chemical weapons in syria. they have hezbollah in their north. they have iran trying to build a nuclear weapon to eliminate them. the muslim brotherhood president of egypt. that strikes me as attacking the victim. >> greta: let me talk about the bigger picture issue. is this impossible for an american president? so many tried it, so many secretary of state's tried it and we manage the crisis from time to time, but the peace seems to be so elusive. >> i sometimes have trouble about being too candid about this. there is no peace process. this is nonsense. this is stuff western politicians do to feel good about themselves. hamas is dedicated to the destruction of israel. iran is dedicated to the destruction of israel. there are factions in syria dedicated to the destruction of israel. hezbollah is dedicated to the destruction of israel. muslim brotherhood want to destroy israel and elected the president. >> why did he go now in the second term? didn't seem to give much attention in the first term. why now? >> i have no idea. i think his polling numbers have gone
, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't remember a time in my lifetime when there was a peaceful status quo in the middle east. it's always been a cauldron. i think the president is right to give a boost to the two- state solution. you're right that he basically is saying that the israelis don't have to stop building settlements in order for the talks to proceed. but his concept is that the pressure will bubble up from these young populations, and that if he can get the peace talks going and he can establish boundaries, that the settlement issue will be solved from that. and i think it is a new approach. he didn't go over there with the peace plan in his pocket, but i think he certainly has revived a sense that peace is possible, which is his word, and he has established, of course, cemented the bond with israel. >> was the u.s. relationship with israel strain
in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a very high concern, something that will be talked about between the president and prime minister netanyahu. >> probably just moves up on the agenda. do we expect president obama to move forward in the movement in the israeli-palestinian peace process as well? >> reporter: that is the issue that is causing controver
families. that's why every country that values justice should call hezbollah what it truly is, a terrorist organization. because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stockpiles rockets to shoot its cities, and supports the massacre of men, women, and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah has allied the assad regime has stockpiles of chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. i've made it clear to bashar al assad and all who follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching. we will hold you accountable. the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grip of a dictator who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. assad must go, so that syria's future can begin. because true stability in syria depends upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people. one that protects all communities within its borders, while making peace
in the hands of terrorists or anti israeli extremists like hezbollah. mr. obama is stressing he is skeptical that they used chemical weapons and cautioned that the u.s. is still investigating claims that syrian president use them, the president a bushel when israeli reporter suggested that the u.s. has beenitting on its hands. >> is incorrect for you to say that we have been nothing. we have helped to mobilize the isolation of the regime internationally. we have supported and rognized the opposition. >> except the president for said that in 85 days were numbered 19 days ago. last summer he warned of potential u.s. force. >> are red line for us is, we stt seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. that would cnge my calculus. >> reporter: back in washington a top republican charge the administration's policy has been addressed. >> the obama administration saw a reformer. on the revolt started they backed u.n. diplomacy. then they bet on moscow to play a constructive role. predictably, none of this has worked. >> reporter: here in israel today netanyahu's new int
as the country fragments following in the hands of al qaeda, maybe hezbollah and being used against israel in jerusalem and all around this country, shep. >> shepard: ed, it still seems unclear whether either side used chemical weapons. >> that's right. now, the israeli intelligence minister today said he believes that chemical weaponsy were, in fact, used. the republican house intelligence chairman mike rogers back in washington went on cbs news and said he also believes that chemical weapons have been used inside syria in recent days. he added an important caveat. take a listen. >> there is a high probability that a chemical agent was used in aleppo. now, again, i'm an old fbi guy. i like to see forensic evidence. >> now, on top of all of this, there was testimony today in a house committee where the u.s. ambassador to syria basically said that he believes that the syrian regime has now lost control of the border with turkey and iraq and in jordan tonight which the president by the way will be visiting on friday. there is fears about a refugee crisis. refugee spilling out of syria into j
't run someone for president and they did. we've seen hamas stronger as well as hezbollah, islamic jihad. and we've seen incredibly unstable situation in syria. when i was there on a congressional visit and we sat down with president netanyahu, one thing he asked, he was concerned about iran and the dominance and occurred and we have the iranian guard in syria. and their march toward having the nuclear device so they can have dominance. >> sean: that's all true and it's gotten worse, leslie, after the suck up to the world apology tour. and king be abdullah, jordan, says it's naive, that the muslim brotherhood are wolves in sheep's clothing, risky for him. and this president is giving 1.5 billion dollars, and f-16 jets and tanks it a guy that views the israelis as the descendents of apes and pigs. do you think that's a good foreign policy, leslie marshall? >> i don't think it's a good foreign policy to pretty much be-- is that a good policy. >> i'm answering, as to how we establish borders and whether we have further settlements in the west bank. >> sean: leslie, leslie, stop with the spi
and hezbollah, this is a regional conflict that many of us have an trying to plead that will expand into the entire region, affect the economy and energy prices. melissa: let me ask you about that. what does it mean for the economy? the human toll is devastating and makes us all shudder to see the pictures. this is a show about "money". we want to make sure we discuss that. what does decivilization mean for the economies of the region? >> well, because you have sort of the shia-sunni axis splitting right in the middle of syria you will see the arab sunni states, the gulf states getting involved. they may find the destabilization prevents transport of oil like it used to. they jack up prices to get world attention and also because maybe they will have to as the region becomes destablized with iraq and iran involved. so at the end of the day i think you're going to see, your segment with boone pickens was so right on the money, we have to find alternative. if there is any message not only to get involved, i pray that the obama administration realizes we need a no-fly zone. we need to
hezbollah from lebanon. they need protection against them. i don't think obama can sustain that, congress will come to israel's support but there could be a window of vulnerability that makes it very difficult situation even more difficult. stuart: is that a big enough threat for the israelis not to do what they want to do? >> the israelis want the united states to do it. because we would do a much better job. when it comes down to it, it never depend on anybody else to defend them. stuart: need your comment on this, jordan's king, beware the muslim brotherhood, they are a wolf in sheep's clothing. >> that is what he has said for years. he is a target of the muslim motherhood. stuart: thing we should give the money to the egyptians? >> we are playing a power game inside of egypt. stuart: ambassador john bolton, thank you. $16.7 billion rising our national debt. debt. i was out of control, but it is an immediate threat, immediate problem. i asked that question to a top journalist at the "wall street journal." next. day is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother
'd be concerned that chemical weapons could get to their enemies, hezbollah, in lebanon. but beyond that, ashleigh, you asked if this would overtake iran as a concern, and the answer is no. because this trip for the president is largely about israel's security broadly. and the u.s. assuring israelis that the president stands for keeping israel safe, and when it comes to security, there is no bigger concern in israel than iran getting a nuclear weapon or nuclear capability, so that will always be the number one issue on the agenda and syria now will compete for some attention as well. >> well, with a busy agenda, you're going to be following this, the president. we are watching live. this was scheduled to start any moment now, the president, shimon peres, and also our united states president, president obama, scheduled to speak any moment. we'll wring it to you live the moment it does happen. chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, thank you for that. >>> when it comes to difficult and challenging jobs, being the director of a prison is certainly near the top of the list. and you can bet t
this yesterday. does syria's arsenal and weapons get in the hands of not just the opposition but hezbollah, hamas, other jihadist groups in this region? the word security takes on many different shapes, many different wrinkles. when you're meeting with the palestinian president it's normally about negotiations and security cooperations with israel. because of everything going on in this part of the world, it's a lot more complicated. and syria, including worries about the use of chemical weapons, you bet that would be a fkter as well. >> we're looking at live pictures of president obama and mahmoud abbas. we saw the president shaking hands and reviewing the palestinian troops. >> similarities from yesterday, this is a red carpet reception, pomp and circumstance as well but protest that is will be greeting him as he lands there and goes through the region. >> jessica yellin is in ramallah, covering this trip. you've been talking to the white house for days now about this what is it that the white house wants to achieve with president ab abbas today? >> reporter: hi, john. hi, zoraida. they're hope
consequences and fear of spilling out and hezbollah looms large. >> wish we had more historical depth how we look at this. this is the third arab state to be devastated by a civil war. without pointing fingers of blame, lebanon for 15 years was devastated by civil war. foreign armies, foreign intelligence services. after the u.s. invasion in 2003 iraq went through a different but similar process. >> let's point fingers, please. >> in case of iraq we can point finger at the bush administration, it's very clear. it's not just displacement of millions of people. it's not just people being slaughtered which is happening in syria. it's the deconstruction of stooss of state, the idea of a state of law, all -- >> the worst elements of society. >> exactly. giving free rein to people whose objectives and aims and means are horrific as far as, including most syrians are concerned or most iraqis and lebanese were concerned and stopping this as quickly as possible is something we should be concerned about. as this continues, the radicalization and extremism gets worse. >> the ripple effect, the reason w
